The end of Gould and 2nd in Warwick

A Warwick illegal alien shows RI isn’t immune to the wave of convicted sex offenders streaming across the southern border.

By Justin Katz | June 2, 2021 |

This year, government agents are seeing exponential growth in the number of known sex offenders entering the United States.  Joseph Curl reports for The Daily Wire: “Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector in Texas have seen a 3,166% increase in arrests of convicted sex offenders compared to the same timeframe last fiscal year…

Is the South Kingstown School Committee retaliating against a resident for seeking information about indoctrination in the schools?

By Justin Katz | June 2, 2021 |

Nicole Solas describes her experience as a concerned mother with the schools in South Kingstown, on Legal Insurrection: These initial high estimates of public records requests are common barriers to parents obtaining information about their children’s school district. A parent in another Rhode Island school district received an estimate of $17,295.75 to obtain public information related…

A man flies with a jetpack

Any chance these will be commercially available before I’m too fragile to use them?

By Justin Katz | June 1, 2021 |

I have to be honest, when I was a kid seeing footage of Michael Jackson exiting a concert using a jetpack, I kind of expected them to be readily available by now. Seeing video of the latest version of that technology on Euro News, I’m still that kid… only now my window of opportunity is…

A lit liquor shelf

State House insiders give the impression of bingeing, with more evergreen contracts.

By Justin Katz | June 1, 2021 |

Workaday Rhode Island taxpayers are in a vulnerable position right now. Progressive legislators are surging.  The replacement of former House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello with Joseph Shekarchi (thanks to the electoral victory of quickly-proving-herself-a-far-left-progressive Republican Barbara Ann Fenton-Fung) is teaching Rhode Island too late that Mattiello really was a firewall against bad leftist policies.  And newly…

Providence Student Union Bill of Rights sign

The Providence Student Union “Student’s Bill of Rights” is a righteousness redirect.

By Justin Katz | June 1, 2021 |

The featured image of this post, which is one of several paid ads that the Providence Student Union has placed around Providence, according to Steve Ahlquist on Uprise RI, illustrates how off base the demands of progressive ideology have thrown young activists.  The full list of 23 asserted rights isn’t much better. Note to students:  Your…

Dan McKee gets vaccinated

Rhode Island’s governor should stop pretending we’re still in an emergency.

By Justin Katz | June 1, 2021 |

From nearly the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve argued that Democrat Governor Gina Raimondo abused her authority by declaring an emergency in order to give herself enhance powers. The emergency provisions in Rhode Island law are meant to be used to manage a desperate circumstance in which there is no time to handle a situation…

Orrin Hatch tweets Clarence Thomas clip

“I’ve never run from bullies. I never cry uncle. And I’m not going to cry uncle today, whether I want to be on the Supreme Court or not.”

By Justin Katz | May 31, 2021 |

Orrin Hatch reminds America of an inspiring moment from Clarence Thomas’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings in 1991 (via Instapundit): “I’d rather die than withdraw. If they’re going to kill me, they’re going to kill me.” One of the most important and iconic moments of Justice Thomas’s confirmation. It was a signal to the world that you…

Left-wing terrorists claim to Abolition Media Worldwide that they torched Speaker Shekarchi’s office over legal evictions.

By Justin Katz | May 31, 2021 |

Terrorists can claim responsibility for anything bad that happens, especially when they do so anonymously.  Still, it’s an unexpected development to see this statement (labeled as “received by email”) on a website that bills itself as “an online news source for revolutionary movements, with information about militant actions, analysis, and features about local struggles from…

William Jacobson has posted video on Legal Insurrection of an event his organization sponsored addressing the move toward “critical race theory” activism, particularly in our towns and in our schools.  Here’s the 38-minute highlight video; the original post has the full video.

A soldier signals to hold

Our fallen heroes deserve a living memorial.

By Justin Katz | May 31, 2021 |

War’s character is recondite in the flow of history to a civilization that seeks to avoid it. War is at once utterly logical and senseless.  The examiner feels as if it must be possible to trace the chain of causes that sparked the bloodshed while thinking it incomprehensible that anything should ever burn so hot.…
